Actually, your example (x86_64) would be a 64bit kernel compiled for
multiple core/processor/hyperthreading support on a x86 platform.
_64 = 64 bit
x86 = 386/486/586/686 series cpu (sort of a generic term. but other
processor types (ARM, etc have their own type)
SMP = multiple processor support.
.fc5 = Fedora Core 5 configured kernel.
